Design and fashion museum lisbon
The exquisite Design and Fashion Museum of Lisbon, widely known as MUDE (Museu do Design e da Moda), gathers together a significant amount of design and fashion industry items representative of the evolution of these fields in the course of the 20th century. The collection was set up Francisco Capelo, who collected some of the works of Jean Prouve, Verner Panton, Alessandro Mendini, Droog Design, Hans Wegner, Le Corbusier and Charlotte Perriand, Charles and Ray Eames, Olivier Morgue, Russel Wright and Marc Newson, Phillipe Starck, Charles Eames, George Nelson, Arne Jacobsen, Paul Henningsen, Vener Panton, Masanori Umeda, Henning Koppel, and Tom Dixon (in terms of design) and of Jean Paul Gaultier and John Galliano, Pierre Balmain, Paco Rabanne, Andre Courreges, Rudi Gernreich, S’Angelo and Bill Gibb, Vivienne Westwood, and Yves Saint Laurent (as far as the fashion industry is concerned), such as to provide a coherent (even if fragmentary) insight into how the basic concepts of design and fashion have evolved in time.
The collections amount to some 1,000 design items (furnishings, jewelry, and glassware) and to more the 1,200 fashion articles. They are arranged in three main sections: luxury, pop and cool. Initially, the museum opened its gates in 1999 in the Belem Cultural Center, but as from 2009 it has been hosted in a new venue.Name: Design and Fashion Museum (Museu do Design e da Moda - MUDE) Address: 24, Rua Augusta, Lisbon, Portugal Telephone: 00351 218 886117 Fax: 00351 218 886124 Email: / Website: www.mude.pt
